Which couple is most annoying on The Amazing Race?
The three candidates for 'Most Annoying Couple' were David and Mary, Sarah and Peter, and Rob and Kimberly. They all definitely lead the pack for 'Most Annoying'. (I'd show pictures of them, but CBS' website doesn't have any!)
Let's break it down after the jump, and you'll see who I find most annoying. Feel free to chime in down in comments.
David and Mary: Let's face it, Mary's voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard. You can't listen to too much of her without your ears bleeding. Poor David never gets a word in edgewise and that's too bad because he actually seems like a rather thoughtful fellow. His emotions were running very high when they first arrived in Vietnam (because his dad fought in the Vietnam war) and Mary didn't seem to notice. But that could just be artful editing on the part of the show's producers. Despite Mary's Deliverance-style twang and her harping on her husband, these two are just too sweet to despise. They've barely ever been out of Kentucky and they really seem to be marveling at their whirlwind trip across the country. Plus, they haven't done anything to step on the toes of any other couple. They've even become tight with the 'Gay Couple', Tom and Jerry Terry, who also happen to be the first gay people they've ever known. I don't think they'll win but I definitely want them to finish higher than the other two couples on the 'Most Annoying' list.
Rob and Kimberly: These two are completely immature in their relationship. When the going gets tough, they lash out at each other instead of directing their energies toward the task at hand. There's always a couple like this, isn't there? Rob has zero patience, which seems to be a hot button issue for Kimberly. Every single task they take part in dissolves into fighting and bitching and blaming... and it's damn hilarious. I don't hate them, I laugh at them. Out loud. I'm waiting for them to break out into a fist fight (or, maybe it already happened but it was edited out?). How are they a couple? I have no freakin' idea. I'm pretty sure this race is going to split them up, unless they figure out how to work together. Still, they are not worthy of the 'Most Annoying' title.
Peter and Sarah (WINNER!!): I am most annoyed by this couple. Actually, by Peter. What a LOSER. What is Sarah doing with this guy? This last episode showed her wondering the same thing. She only has one leg and she doesn't bitch and complain about it. Amazingly, she has powered through two very tough, rock climbing challenges (her life story is remarkable). Sarah is a very clear thinker who sees that she's doing most of the work for her team. Peter, on the other hand, is a complete idiot. He tries to pull the 'handicapped' card with her all the time to get ahead in the race. His constant, fake encouragement of her is maddening. And last night he was a complete hypocrite as Sarah tried to encourage him at rowing, he asked her not to speak. WTF? He wouldn't shut up during the rock climbing challenge long enough for Sarah to hear the directions. Sarah, on the other hand, has amazing patience. She is a one-woman team with a loser for a partner. I have to say that Peter is the most annoying person on this season of The Amazing Race, and poor Sarah is along for the ride, which makes them 'Most Annoying Couple' in my book.
